Georgie Clarke is an influencer known for keeping it ‘real’ with her unfiltered pics, showing off her natural body in all its glory.
And after growing tired of the standards of ‘perfection’ on Instagram, she is now exposing exactly how some influencers fake unblemished bellies, bums and tums.
Georgie has 721,000 Instagram followers, the majority of whom seem to appreciate her refreshing approach to social media.
In one recent post, the stunning influencer continued her mission to remind people that they are beautiful in their own bodies and that they should not compare themselves to influencers.
Normalising how bodies actually look, Georgie posted three snaps to show how easy it is for someone to mask their belly and stretch marks.
In the snap on the left, Georgie can be seen posing in white laced underwear with her knickers hiked up to her hips.
However in the snaps on the right, she can be seen exposing her stretch marks on her thigh and relaxing her stomach.
She captioned the motivational post: “Happy Friday gorgeous people! Just a reminder for you… here are the photos you don’t see on here. For every photo you see posted on Instagram…. there’s so many other snippets you didn’t get to see.”
“Just because someone’s posted a (fire emoji) photo looking incredible, it doesn’t mean their body doesn’t do normal things when they aren’t posed for a photo.”
She then shared how three easy steps can change the way someone looks in pictures: “So many things can change how we appear in front of a camera. The top 3 are: lighting, angles, pose.”
“And trust me when I tell you that as an influencer, you become a pro at nailing these three aspects when shooting content.”
“It becomes second nature to work out these three elements before you’ve even taken one shot. So when you see those photos, don’t think for one second that that is how the influencer looks 24/7.”
She shared: “Her body looks like the pictures on the right when she isn’t “ready for the camera” she has all the normal things that you have too. The only difference is, she’s not showing them on here – she’s hiding them.”
“So please do not let that be a reflection of how you feel about yourself. You simply cannot compare yourself to a page of influencer highlights. She’s only posting the amazing 10/10 shots!”
She ended her post by urging her fans not to be so hard on themselves: “Your body is normal and beautiful and shouldn’t be compared. When that negative talk creeps in – remember this post. Your body is worthy of love and compassion .”
Fans took to the comments to praise her for being so ‘real’ and thanked her for inspiring them to be more authentic.
One person commented: “I love your real, raw and honest posts. Thank you for sharing and normalising our bodies and imperfections.”
Another user added: “ You’re doing important work for both women and men to understand what’s real, normal, healthy and what is posed and curated for imagining. Thank you.”
Whilst a third person said: “ I love you so much. You’re such a big inspiration for me. And for so many other women.”
Someone else noted: “Gorgeous as always!!!! Thanks again for showing the realities of bodies!! It really helps others.”
